Seldom does a book achieve status as a classic in its first edition, but The Art of Aesthetic Surgery by Foad Nahai has been hailed as a masterpiece since its inception. Reviews have been universally laudatory, and residents and experienced practitioners alike have embraced this work as the ultimate resource on all things aesthetic.

Now, this landmark work has been totally revised and updated with over 40 new chapters (many with new authors) and every chapter has been revised to reflect the latest trends, techniques, and information. This three-volume set also includes seven DVDs with 24 operative videos.

Comprehensive Coverage
93 chapters in three volumes cover the full range of cosmetic medical treatments and aesthetic operations. Topics include:

  • Hair transplantation and brow lift
  • Eyelid surgery
  • Laser resurfacing and chemical peels
  • Tissue fillers and fat grafting
  • Rhytidectomy and face and neck lift
  • Facial implants
  • Rhinoplasty and ptoplasty
  • Lip rejuvenation
  • Breast augmentation, reduction, and mastoplexy
  • Surgical, noninvasive, and minimally invasive body contouring
  • Liposuction

To address the modern physician’s need for business acumen as well as surgical skill, three chapters focus on practice management, ranging from practice model options, staff and financial management, marketing and communications, and legal issues.

World-Renowned Authors
Dr. Foad Nahai is an acknowledged leader in aesthetic surgery. He has personally written a third of the chapters for this three-volume work. His contributors, representing the "who’s who" of aesthetic surgery, provide detailed accounts of their techniques for the different operations, as well as the planning process so crucial to producing excellent results.

Help with Decision-Making
Of particular note are the clinical decision-making chapters authored by Dr. Nahai. This invaluable insight provides readers with a unique overview of the various options for each problem, along with his preferred solutions. Complete with algorithms and case studies, this problem-solving feature offers the expert guidance necessary to sort through options, understand their advantages and limitations, and make the best choice for each patient.

Necessary Anatomy
Key chapters introducing each major anatomic region or topic area focus on applied anatomy and provide essential information that the surgeon needs to know to execute these surgical maneuvers safely and effectively.

Reliable Format
This new edition maintains the same features that made the previous edition so popular, including beautiful medical illustrations, large type for readability, and a consistent, comprehensive approach. The semi-atlas format features the applicable images located next to legend text for enhanced clarity.


"...more than a multi-authored, three-volume text in full color on the entire field of aesthetic surgery, edited by Foad Nahai. It is also eminently readable, beautifully illustrated, and extraordinarily comprehensive. Most importantly, it is personal. Although multi-authored, much of the book is written by Dr. Nahai himself and represents his personal journey through a career in plastic surgery. His personal experience and narrative tie the chapters together in a way that is unique for books of this type. The three volumes provide the most comprehensive book on the topic of aesthetic surgery ever produced."
Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Journal

"... draws on the talents of some of the world’s leading experts to provide the best information possible on a broad range of topics. ... Foad Nahai has to be congratulated for many aspects of this set of books―choosing the authors and getting them to write their chapters, arranging the text, organizing the uniformity and excellence of the illustrations, and finally for contributing so much of his own work and experience. ... will be the gold standard in all ways for many long years to come."
European Journal of Plastic Surgery

"This three-volume text is going to be a standard reference point for all aesthetic surgeons. It is edited by plastic surgeons whose qualifications are impeccable, and contains contributions from over 70 experienced aesthetic surgeons. ...Produced in full colour with excellent quality of illustrations, it is a joy to browse. This is a book I shall use for years to come, in fact until there is a new edition, I expect. I unreservedly recommend it for all undertaking aesthetic surgery, as a refresher and updater for the older surgeon and a bible for the new recruit. It ably demonstrates that aesthetic surgery has become a discipline and it is one of the foundation texts for practitioners. I strongly recommend it."
Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery

"This multi-authored text is one of the most comprehensive works on aesthetic surgery ever published. ...The overall effect is a physically beautiful and appealing work that feels good to look at and is easy to read. No review can do justice to this magnificent work. One simply has to hold it in the hands to fully appreciate it. I would advise any physician interested in aesthetic surgery to take a long look at this textbook."
